We talked to Kristi today about how there are some words we're hearing now that we have no idea where they came from, but it seems as if they're everywhere. Then it got us thinking about just how different they are from words people said in the 1980s or even the 1990s. It seems as if each generation has their own set of buzzwords, specific to them. We put together a list of some of the words we could think of, do you have anymore? Which of these words did you, or do you still, overuse?
